The Career Education unit is proud to do work that integrates conversations about careers and the future into many facets of the university experience.
- We help students prepare for and pursue meaningful work.
- We support students in better understanding who they are and who they want to become.
- We curate accessible career resources to empower students to be active learners as they move through their careers.
Together with our Experiential Learning and Employer Relations colleagues, we make up the Careers & Experience department. Our goals are to connect undergraduate and graduate students with learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom and to support students in designing a meaningful future through career education and networking opportunities.

Cam MalthanerCareer Coach
Cam's background is in teaching and coaching, and he applies that mindset when delivering workshops or assisting students. His main advice to students is to step back, do some self-reflection, and breathe: life isn't a race, so finding your direction shouldn’t feel like one either. Graduating from Western with majors in Genetics and Classical Studies, Cam is living proof that degrees don't have to be specific, or even make sense, to lead to a meaningful life or career. Cam likes reading, working out, and video games in his spare time. He would be more than happy to connect on LinkedIn if you want to say hi!
